Veggie Tales

Like 4 million or so other suckers, I tuned in to Iron Chef a couple of weeks ago when four chefs went at it using veggies from the White House garden.

Except, they didn't actually use those veggies.

According to this story, the Iron Chef folks used stunt veggies and misled the audience.  What we thought were radishes and stuff pulled from Michelle Obama's garden were instead probably pulled from the produce aisle of the nearby Kroger.

Throughout the show the chefs talked about how great the veggies were from the WH garden.  Yeah, maybe, but for some reason they had to mislead us throughout the commercials for the competition and the program itself.  I feel like I've been used with a really big squash.

Below, their own Youtube bit:
